REVIEW // Birchbox October 2014


Sooo, I'm a little bit later than planned with my Birchbox Review this month - I'm not as happy with it as last month but I'm still pretty impressed, it definitely seems like Birchbox have been on a bit of a roll with their boxes for the past few months - there was an error in my box this month, I ended up with two Pixi Lip Balms instead of the Meaningful Beauty Serum which is a bit of a shame but I actually really like the Pixi balm and I know my sister will love it as we're both pretty fond of a neutral tinted lip balm so I shall be giving one to her to try next time I see her. Anyway, onto the box, the theme was a collab with Coppafeel for Breast Cancer Awareness and all the products were packaged up in a handy little pink canvas makeup bag.

Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Honey Nectar

This was the standout product for me, it left lips super moisturised with a wash of colour- the colour of Honey Nectar is a little bit like the 90's Kylie Jenner look with a hint of gold glitter, I'd prefer it without the gold sheen running through it but I still really love this.

KMS California Dry Wax Spray

I haven't actually tried this on my hair yet but I have given it a little spray and it's unusual, a little bit like a heavier texturising spray - I think it could be good, I've just been working all week so haven't had a chance to play around with it yet.

Cattier Pink Clay Mask

Another one that I haven't tried but I'm really looking forward to trying, I got two sachets of this and they both have a fair amount of product in so I'm guessing I'll get at least 4 masks out of it, I don't think I've got any products with Pink Clay in either so I'm interested to see the difference, I'll do a review on this once I've given it a go!

Shaveworks The Cool Fix

I've tried this one but only once but so far so good, a gel formula that is quite cooling but I don't really suffer from Razor burn - This may be TMI, but I'm going to give it a whirl on my underarms (the word armpits makes me want to vom) to see how that goes, if there's any revelations there, I'll be sure to let you all know!
